    Hi, My 2004.5 B5.5 GLS turnsignal switch has lost the 'flash-to-pass' function ~ something the USA cars never had :lol: , but speedy Canadians and Europeans need :driving: My other annoyance with the turnsignal is how harsh feeling the action is to activate the signals. To be fair, it has...

    I bought my 04 GLS in Jan 07 with about 34k miles. It's currently a hair past 77k right now. Since I've owned it, I've always used VW 502 oil and the large filter every 5k miles and kept up with all required services. I changed the VCG recently with some help, and from the top the engine looks...

    It was raining and I misjudged where the driveway for work was and hit the 10-12" high curb like a brick wall with my right front at 5,10-15mph, idk. Would not start immediately, but after it stopped raining I went out and it started and ran, so I moved it to the garage at work. Popped hood...

    I'm thinking about running a stand alone with my setup, but I can't figure out if we can because of the electronic throttle? I'd like to run an AEM mostly because I'm going to be running a custom turbo setup with water meth, I'd like to delete the SAP and the MAF, and I can't find any software...

    Details: Went to see Dark Knight Friday night. Came out of the cinema at 9:15 to find debris all around my car. Come to find out, a large branch fell out of the tree and hit my car and pretty much exploded leaving debris... and damage everywhere. Seems the branch first hit the car on the...

    using my own knowledge, i was say that this has to do with a fuel management system. is so how does this differ, and what is involved. also how much power is needed in order to go to a stand-alone. if a stand alone system does not deal with fuel management, then what does this term mean. i...

    Here is some info that I got my hands on about all the company having oil sludge problems. In a way I'm happy to see that VW is not the only manufaturer having that problem.
  15. Volkswagen Passat Early B Platforms Discussion
    Just changed some exhaust-parts (including a used CAT wich seem to be working ok). But after this the car started to burn very much fuel (about 2.9-3.4 litres per 10Km according to MFA), also the CO was way to high on the EU-check that we have to go thru. VAG-Com seem to give me some error...

    The last post I've been able to find of a Mojave Beige B5.5 is about a year ago. I've seen so many mods and cosmetic changes on here, but never any for my color! So I'm gonna put mine up finally. No exterior changes yet. Currently working on the audio with a nice Kenwood setup. I am embarrassed...

    Hi, My 2003 GLX has an alpine navigation system in it. My screen is one of the alpine cva-1003 "flip" type screens (it has a motorized up & down feature). Well my motor broke, or something was screwy with it. Either way, it had to be replaced. I went to the audio shop that put it in (in Dec...

    I took my car to a mechanic today to get the clutch replaced (and now check my fuses and ccm :( ). He had a Passat wagon TDI up on the hoist. I asked him what was up with that, and he told me that someone had changed their starter wrong. Whoever did it messed it up BIG TIME! The car chewed...
